The Lancashire P4S site was originally launched in 2012 by the Pan-Lancashire Prevent for Education Group. Following immensely positive feedback and an unprecedented growth in use by schools across the UK, the site has seen recent revisions to ensure currency.

As with the original P4S site, this resource provides a variety of practical materials and broader guidance to support schools with educating and safeguarding pupils against the dangers of radicalisation and violent extremism.

This CPD event was led by London Grid for Learning's esafety specialists Katy Potts and Penny Patterson, with Guest Speaker Sara Khan

The scope of e-safety is always rapidly changing, and the use of social media and online environments increases contact risks.

This event was aimed at school leaders, senior leadership teams and school child protection leads and content included:

  • How extreme content is seen, shared and becomes viral.
  • The harm caused by the media in warping perceptions of the involvement children and young people in extreme behaviours.
  • The impact on children and young people when exposed to extreme content, such as atrocity videos. Extreme violence becoming normalised.
  • How many forms of harm and abuse, whether radicalisation, sexual abuse, child sexual exploitation, gang membership - all start with a grooming process.
  • How good quality ongoing e-safety, PSHE education etc., is essential in helping children and young people develop their own sense of risk, raise their self-esteem and self-worth.
  • How to recognise and respond to signs of radicalisation of students in your school.

Extremism is not a new topic in education, but recent events and legislation require schools to be fully apprised with this area. London Grid for Learning have created this resource in partnership with Sara Khan from counter-extremism and women's rights organisation Inspire. She highlights the fact that mainstream Islam and ISIS are worlds apart, and lays out principles that apply equally to all forms of extremism, including the far-right. This resource should not only build professionals' confidence in safeguarding young people, but also help in challenging anti-Muslim sentiment and promote shared values and community cohesion.
